Tata Motors has presented the Nexon compact SUV’s second significant redesign. The Nexon and Nexon EV facelifts will be available for purchase on September 14th, with reservations opening on September 4th.
The 2023 Nexon EV has new amenities such as a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen and a new two-spoke steering wheel, and its style is clearly inspired by the Curvv and Harrier EV concepts.
What is in Exterior Design
The Nexon ev facelift features a split-headlamp design with sequential LED DRL signatures on top and headlights on the bottom. The DRLs are linked by a thin upper grille that houses the Tata emblem, and the headlights are housed in a trapezoidal housing. The lower section of the bumper features a larger grille with a thick plastic bar running across it and a false skid plate.
The new accent line (which is not accentuated in a contrasting hue) and new alloy wheels are the only alterations to the profile. The Nexon EV now features a full-width LED light bar with the Tata Motors emblem in the center, and the reverse light has been relocated to the bumper. The license plate is still located in the bumper, which also gets a false skid plate. The Nexon facelift has the same 208mm ground clearance as the previous model.
Interior Design of Tata Nexon Facelift 2023
The interior of the Nexon EV facelift is very similar to the Curvv concept, featuring a redesigned touchscreen arrangement and a two-spoke steering wheel. The AC vents are now thinner and more angular, and there are fewer tactile buttons on the dashboard. Speaking of HVAC controls, there are two toggles in the central console, which is ringed by a touch-based screen. The dashboard has leather accents as well as a carbonfibre-like appearance.
Front and centre is a freestanding 10.25-inch touchscreen that debuted earlier this year in the Nexon EV Max Dark variant. The Nexon makeover now includes a 10.25-inch full-digital instrument cluster with navigation that can be modified. A 360-degree camera, linked car technology, a wireless charger, heated front seats, an air purifier, and other goodies are included in the top-spec Nexon makeover. The Nexon facelift comes standard with six airbags, ESC, three-point seat belts for all seats, ISOFIX, and emergency and breakdown call assist.
The Nexon facelift will retain the 120hp, 170Nm, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine, which is now available with a choice of four gears, depending on the variant: a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed AMT, and a 7-speed dual-clutch automated (with paddle shifters). The 115hp, 260Nm, 1.5-litre diesel, on the other hand, remains available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT gearbox.
As previously reported, Tata Motors has abandoned the existing naming strategy that began with ‘X’ – XE, XM, XM+, XZ+, and XZ+ Lux – in favor of a Punch-like naming scheme. Smart, Smart+, Smart+ (S), Pure, Pure (S), Creative, Creative+, Creative+ (S), Fearless, Fearless (S), and Fearless+ (S) are the new trim designations for the Nexon makeover. The ‘+’ symbol suggests optional packages that include numerous amenities, whereas (S) indicates trims that include a sunroof.
